I just went through cancer in 2010 and I have now been cancer free for a year. I was wondering if i could get a tattoo? I i went through chemotherapy and radiation and have wanted to get a tattoo for awhile but did not know since i had cancer and went thr
Yes: Your question got cut off, but as long as you are not on any immunosuppressives (for gvhd after a bone marrow transplant, for example), you are ok to get a tattoo from a reputable artist that takes the necessary infectious disease risk precautions.

This will be positive for lifetime, and provides life-long immunity. The igm antibody is the acute phase measure that demonstrates acute infection. Identify wh/ test you had that was positive now, and in the past. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I was exposed to someone who had gastro over 3 days ago and I am not sick. I haven't seen them since is there a chance I can still get it or not ?
Still a small chance: These infections usually incubate over a two to three day period, so you're almost out of the woods. If you don't have any symptoms by tomorrow, then you're probably OK. ...Read more
I had surgery last year and now I have a keloid on my stomach. I am now pregnant, do I need to worry about it as I get bigger?
Possibly: It depends on whether this is a true keloid or a hypertrophic scar. The difference is sometimes not clear, but a keloid generally extends beyond the limits of the original scar, the ht scar does not. If the scar is just thickened, the stretching of the abdomen with pregnancy may actually thin it out. I wouldn't be too concerned about this. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Genital warts: hello~ unfortunately there is only 2 ways to adequately deal with genital warts and that is burning them off with liquid nitrogen and using high energy Hyphricator to burn them off.Both will require a general anesthesia because of the extensive nature of the lesions. If you leave them they will most likely get worse, so my advice is have them surgically treated asap (ps: I grew up in Kitwe !) thks ...Read more
